I think he's talking about this show:

What a fantastic article. This is bringing back mega memories and indeed it was the DOG show at OAkland w/ the
Beach Boys and Commander Cody doing his boogie woogie piano gig was a great day. Until reading the article I did not know that more shows were held at old Kezar Stadium which I guess preceeded my coming to the bay area .The one and only
Kezar Show I did see was the SNACCK concert for I believe was a benefit for the S.F. school distric.It had many named acts and culminated w/ I believe was billed as Jerry Garcia and Friends (I might be wrong on the billing title)basically your typical GD line-up plus Merle Saunders and others joining in.Sorry for not being more specific but I'm going on pure memory here.

To answer your question did they ever play together again I'm not sure of that but I did see the Beach Boys as
the headline act in Oakland Auditorium.If my memory serves me today they used all white gear .Amps keyboards everything was done in white.
